The GOPTIONS procedure provides information about the values of graphics options and the global statement definitions that are currently in effect in your session. The values displayed are either the defaults of the current device driver or user -defined values that have been assigned in your SAS session. You can use the GOPTIONS procedure to
list the current values of all of the graphics options, or of one specified option
display the values of all of the AXIS, FOOTNOTE, LEGEND, PATTERN, SYMBOL, and TITLE definitions that are currently in effect.
Note: Do not confuse the GOPTIONS procedure with the GOPTIONS statement. The GOPTIONS procedure lists the values that are defined in a GOPTIONS statement as well as in any other global statement definitions. See GOPTIONS Statement on page 146 for a list of the graphics options that you can set with the GOPTIONS statement. See Chapter 8, Graphics Options and Device Parameters Dictionary, on page 261 for a complete description of each graphics option.
The list of graphics options displays in the SAS LOG window and includes the names of the options, the current values, and a brief description of each one. You can use PROC GOPTIONS statement options to control what information is listed and where it appears in the LOG window. Output 36.1 contains part of a sample LOG listing.
